Thankful for the Lord’s faithfulness through the start of this new ministry called International Orality Institute.

Thankful for the Lord’s use of this oral strategy to share God’s Word to impact people in Uganda, India, and Mexico. The Ugandan ministry team is already preparing for the graduation of students from multiple classes next April. The classes in India report that they continue to press on through the lessons. The Bible School in the Baja of Mexico is including the oral curriculum as part of their school requirements.

Thankful for the excitement of the students as God’s Word comes alive to them.

Thankful for those whom the Lord has prompted to support this work.

Thankful for board members who are enthusiastic about this ministry and bringing its message to those in their spheres of influence.

Thankful because the doors for future opportunities include conversations with missionaries from the Dominican Republic, World Mission Prayer League, and Hope Centers for Children of Africa.

Thankful for our God who loves us and calls us into His Kingdom work. “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-20
